Living with Vervet Monkeys in South Africa

Vervet Monkey

Vervets at Home

Feeding wild vervet monkeys is kind of a catch 22: On one hand (pun intended) they are classified as vermin in South Africa and not feeding them may help them keep their distance from humans. On the other hand, with encroachment upon their natural habitat they are in fact the neighbors of many in the Kwa Zulu- Natal province of South Africa.
CROW- Centre for Rehabilitated Orphan Wildlife in Durban, South Africa takes in many vervet monkeys during the year offering sanctuary and a chance for some to return to the wild. Check out this non-profit and learn more!
